A Philadelphia woman claims in a recently filed civil suit that she sustained back and limb injuries after a revolving door closed on her at a Montgomery County hotel.
Alberetta Shepard is suing Philadelphia-based Valley Forge Convention Center Partners over injuries she claims to have sustained last spring at the Radisson Hotel Valley Forge in King of Prussia, Pa.
Shepard, who was a guest of the hotel at the time, alleges that she suffered a host of bodily injuries on April 21, 2012, after a set of revolving doors at the business suddenly struck her while she was attempting to exit the place of lodging.
The plaintiff claims she sustained injuries to the discs in her back, as well as injuries to her head and extremities, including her shoulders and knees.
Shepard, who claims she had to spend various sums of money on medical care, accuses the defendants of negligence and recklessness for failing to inspect the revolving doors to ensure the safety of pedestrians, failing to properly install and maintain the revolving doors, failing to warn the plaintiff of a dangerous condition, and failing to ensure that proper and adequate motion sensors and doorway holding beams were installed in the set of revolving doors.
Shepard, who seeks more than $50,000 in damages, is being represented by Philadelphia lawyer Bernard M. Gross.
The case ID number is 130902214.
